It started out as a normal tech week… and then Slack wrote an open letter to Microsoft – an unforced error. We dive deep into why it’s a mistake. Plus, we talk about a new vigilante app, Deepmind playing Starcraft, Apple’s lack of a vision, Toyota’s cool toy to turn on your car, Xiamoi’s goal of selling phones in the US, the future of voice activated devices, and VR. See below for all the show notes.
Spoiler Alert! This week we trash the news: HP/webOS = Google’s Worst Nightmare?, Facebook dies?, Majel to say “Hello World”?, Nokia dislikes iPhone/Android, Getaround goes to Portland, the iPad takes off with American Airlines, NTSB stops talking in the car, Apple buys a flash memory company, Best Buy + Wolfram = Siri results, SiriTV, the missing Kindle Fire Manual, and Dilbert’s boss gets Siri.
